HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR SYSTEM IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS
I agree @ossicle2brain.  I have an extensive hard drive with files from standard CD's to DSD.   But my streaming is so highly optimized that is not always true that local sounds better than a high rez stream from Qobuz.  I love Bela and Cosmic Hip... 
HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR SYSTEM IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS
It  has been fun hearing everybody's "favorite sounding songs that they like''. Is that fair to say??  My only intention here was that some music (that I like) sounds better than other music (that I like).  There have been many great suggestions ... 
Diving into balanced
+3 on 1 meter.  I did the .5m thing and needed to replace them eventually. Some cables, esp power cables, perform better at 1.75 to 2m.

HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR SYSTEM IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS
So (@roxy54) I do like to keep a short playlist called Demo, where I listen to the 'sound first' on music I enjoy and know well.  I think it is very useful when evaluating a new piece of equipment.  Here are a few from memory: Anette Askvik  'Lib...

HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR SYSTEM IN LESS THAN 30 SECONDS
NO not true.  I am music first and listen to what I LIKE.  But I like much of Dire and much of Mark.  And it sounds great.  I LOVE and listen to old Genesis, Yes, Tull Moody Blues, Pink Floyd, Dead, Jackie Greene, Cheeze, Buckethead ect. as well a... 
Solo streamer
When you upgrade it is nice to leave a little 'upside buffer'.  The N200 gives him this.  If he CHOOSES to upgrade the DAC one day, at least the streamer will be ready.  And to many ears, the N200 does sound better than the N150.  So leave the man... 
Grimm MU1/Mola Mola Tambaqui combo vs. Grimm MU2
A couple of points here.  I know Bill and he is usually spot on with respect to how things sound.  He states the MU2 is excellent.  His point about the MU1 and separate Tambaqui is that if you use excellent power cables and interconnects, the sepa... 
ReL Subs: High Level or Low Level connection
Hi again @veerossi.  I would get them again, it makes me feel better!  And due to the long run the larger wire is probably a good idea.  I have some extra ones if you are interested pm me!  
ReL Subs: High Level or Low Level connection
Hi @veerossi i found the Baseline Blue cables to be fine for sub high level connections.  I have nice cables everywhere, but do find the sub cables the least impactful.  I certainly looked at other options, but I have one long run of 30’ under th... 
Best streamer to replace my Mac Mini?
Hello @audiotroy,  I have read your accolades about the EVO streamers for some time on these posts.  Many have (politely or not) slammed your comments as dealer salesmanship.  I have a Grimm MU1, running Roon Core and streaming to my Mola Mola Tam... 
A nightmare regarding streaming?
How do you export a Roon playlist to PDF?  Thanks Hi @cfa88  I had to try a few times to remember myself.  Open the playlist and click the three dots to the right of "Play Now"   Click export:   Now this does not seem to work currently ... 
Upgrade Digital Cable Review
++ on Network Acoustics and in my experience Rich.  I have two Muon Pro Ethernet Filters and they are great.  I also second their AES digital cables.  And top notch customer service to boot!  
A nightmare regarding streaming?
I feel your pain @lovehifi22 !  I have lost years of extensive playlists when my Roon Core crashed.  Now on roon I export all playlists to a pdf.  Since Qobuz and Roon sync I have redundancy if I make a Qobuz playlist at the same time I add songs ...
